I have an amazing recipe to share with you on this bright Tuesday morning in May.
Seriously. You might want to bookmark this page now.
Because this is that good.
In Justin’s words… “This isn’t good. This is amazing. This is a meal you should make when parents come over for dinner.”
Now, I must give credit where credit should be given. This to.die.for. recipe is lightly adapted from Gina @ Skinny Taste.

Cheesy Chicken Rollatini with Spinach
Serves 3 (or 2 – if you have a manly man like Justin in the house who must have 2 rolls 😉 )
- 3 chicken breasts, thin
- 3/4 cup frozen spinach, drained of liquid
- 2 1/2 tbsp skim ricotta cheese
- 1 tbsp parmesean cheese
- Part Skim Mozzarella cheese – amount can vary depending on your liking
- 1/4 c. whole wheat seasoned bread crumbs
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp pepper
- 2 egg whites
- Marinara sauce (I used store bought because I’ve never made sauce before – but you can obvi use homemade)
- Preheat Oven to 450* and coat a baking pan with non-stick cooking spray
- Clean chicken and pat dry.
- In a small bowl, combine the drained spinach, ricotta, 1/2 tbsp of parmesean, and about 1.5 tbsp of mozzarella (diced)
This is about how much mozz I used:
When I diced it, it became this:
Set this mixture aside.
- Combine breadcrumbs, remaining parmesan cheese, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Put the egg whites in another bowl.
- Spread a thin layer of your cheese mixture on your chicken breasts.
- Bake in the oven for 25 minutes.
- Remove and top with marinara sauce and a slice of mozzarella cheese.
- Return to over for about 5 minutes – until the cheese appears to have melted.
- Enjoy this ridiculously amazing meal.
Tonight, Justin and I paired this chicken dish with some steamed carrots. Yes. I know. Not really a great pair. BUT, I love carrots…so don’t judge. It is just how I roll.
Streaming veggies is my favorite way of preparing them. But I don’t have a steamer. Problem? No way. This is also how I roll:
Sauce pan, colander, and a lid to a larger pan 🙂
Seriously – try this recipe. It looks like it was something difficult… but it was so easy!
